Ribeiro, Boucher leads Stars back from sure loss

Jan 31, 2007 - 6:33 AM
SAN JOSE, California (Ticker) -- The San Jose Sharks didn't take advantage of all their chances. Mike Ribeiro made them pay.

Ribeiro scored in regulation before recording the game-winner in the shootout as the Dallas Stars rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Sharks, whose NHL record of 49 straight games without overtime came to an end.

Defenseman Phillipe Boucher scored with 2.2 seconds left in the third period to force overtime for Dallas, which overcame a 2-0 second-period deficit.

The Sharks were cruising but failed to capitalize on four power-play chances in the middle stanza and an open-net chance by Curtis Brown. Given some life, the Stars went to work.

Ribeiro's seventh goal of the season 3:56 into the period halved the deficit. The Stars kept the pressure on Sharks goaltender Vesa Toskala, outshooting them 15-4, in the last 20 minutes. The pressure finally paid off when Eric Lindros centered the puck from behind the left side of the net that deflected off a defender and was put in the net by Boucher, who batted the puck from out of the air.

In the shootout, Ryane Clowe and fellow rookie Joe Pavelski each tallied, but the Stars Sergei Zubov and Jussi Jokinen matched. After Patrick Marleau's flip went over the post, Ribeiro blasted a forehand through the pads of Toskala, snapping Dallas' two-game losing streak.

Pavelski opened the scoring 2:18 into the first and Marleau added his 25th of the season 4:06 into the second, giving the Sharks a 2-0 edge.
